... as eagles

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

The day you gave us, Lord, is ended

The day you gave us, Lord, is ended,
the darkness falls at your request.
To you our morning hymns ascended;
your praise shall sanctify our rest.

John Ellerton (b. London, England, 1826; d. Torquay, Devonshire, England, 1893)

Time ...

That was then ...

This is now ...

7 years gone by ... in the blink of an eye.

"Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom."  Psalm 90:12

Towards dusk

 "I venerate old age; and I love not the man who can look without emotion upon the sunset of life, when the dusk of evening begins to gather over the watery eye, and the shadows of twilight grow broader and deeper upon the understanding."

(Henry Wadsworth Longfellow  - February 27, 1807 - March 24, 1882)

For some, the night is approaching. But who knows the day or the hour ? We are all only a breath away from eternity. Seek the LORD while He may be found ... (Isaiah 55:6)

Peace is ...

... seeing a sunset, and knowing who to thank.
